Chelsea’s Frank Lampard has been named Premier League Manager of the Month after a perfect October.
The Chelsea boss won all three of his league games last month against Burnley, Southampton and Newcastle.
The victories meant the Blues jumped into fourth place in the table, six points above fifth-placed Arsenal.
‘Winning an individual award like this is the perfect time to appreciate the close staff who have worked so hard since pre-season and the players, as they are the ones who go out and perform,’ Lampard told the Premier League. ‘I am delighted for everybody.
‘Out of the Premier League games we played in October, the one away against Burnley was the highlight because of the way we were so dominant in our performance and it is a very tough place to go.’
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was also nominated but was pipped by Lampard having drawn at Old Trafford.
